In our NYC FEAST of SAN GENNARO FOOD TOUR 2020 During COVID-19 vs 2019, we take a walk and food tour comparison along Mulberry Street in mid-September during the annual Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy of Manhattan, directly comparing what it looked like in 2019 vs what it looked like in 2020 when most of the festivities including street food vendors, rides and games were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The restaurants lining Mulberry Streets are still open with outdoor dining until 11PM during the #Coronavirus lockdown in NYC, including @benito1nyc but the streets are largely empty. • The Feast of San Gennaro is the longest and most popular street food fair in New York City and this annual event which runs for 11 days in September along Mulberry Street Between Canal and Houston Streets usually brings in one million tourists and New Yorkers to Little Italy.
The #Feast dates back to 1926 when Neapolitan immigrants wanted to continue the September 19th Feast observed back home in Italy.
